COWBOYS AND ALIENS WHAT IS HOLLYWOOD THINKING? MAYBE THEY ARE NOT

I went to the movies today. I cannot believe that a movie such as Cowboys and Aliens was ever made. I am literally flabbergasted. Now for those that liked it, I apologize. Please enjoy and I respect your movie tastes. When I was watching this, I couldn't get it right in my mind whether to enjoy as a SCI-FI movie or a WESTERN

PICK ONE AND THEN SHOW IT

I like SCI-FI movies. If done properly, I love them. The same goes for westerns too. But to combine the two just doesn't transfer well in my mind nor in my 15 year old granddaughter'S mind either. So I am wondering who the target audience really was?

BOTH ACTORS ACTED

I enjoyed seeing Daniel Craig who just recently played James Bond. He was the fittest I have ever seen a man to be. It appeared nothing on his body was wasted as as muscles go. Lean and mean. I also enjoyed seeing Harrison Ford too. Here is what I came away with.

BOTH ACTORS ARE ENJOYABLE

Harrison Ford would do well in a western movie. He has the gruffness, the maturity and his face is westernized. Daniel Craig can do SCI-FI and has done it and it comes across well. I am convinced he could even play a decent role in a western.

I KNOW WHY THE STARS DID IT

These guys have to be commanding 15-20 million a picture so I think they are above criticisms. However, I am stumped about what Hollywood is thinking. If they continue on like this, they are doomed. HBO will be able to put out better pictures and cheaper too.

THE BIG SCREEN LIVES BUT FOR HOW LONG?

I love the big screen, the audio and the movie theater experience of course without the crowds. But if they keep this up, I am staying home. Of course when a true winner comes up, I will be there but the question is will the theaters?

I just can't wrap my mind around this one, either. I wasn't planning on even going to see it unless a friend recommended it.

I saw it under experimental conditions other wise I would not go. I will recommend Captain America as an entertaining movie that allows you a reason to eat popcorn and candy once again. Add a friend and it works too

How did the audience respond to the film? My guess this movie will quickly find its way out of the theater.

Richie - As much as I enjoy watching those two actors, after seeing the trailers (at another movie), I immediately knew I wouldn't be spending any money to see Cowboys & Aliens.  VIDEO!!!

Doug...very few in the audience to begin with...it is out of here and already projecting a world wide loss even with the stars hyping it out via personal appearances. It is dead and it wont lie down...

 

Donne...at home under the right circumstances, you can enjoy these two. You nailed it Donne...girl
